  • haha...sorry to laugh...my DHs boa used to go all over the house---ugh...we used a little vinegar water solution to get him moving one day...but can irriate the skin...I would take the printer and the snake and put it in her cage---then wait. If it doesnt fit in the cage---try the bathroom or someother place you can catch her when she decides to come out.

  • That's funny. Why do you have a snake out anyway? Shouldn't it be in a cage.

  • she was used to being out of the cage from the person watching her... he had 3 of these Royal Ball Pythons running around his 3 bd apartment. So I take her out so she doesn't get the feeling of being trapped and therefore won't turn on me. Well, she found a tight cozy place instead!!! I am trying to put her back in her cage, but I think she knows.....

  • Well good luck...Hopefully shes not really stuck...If its close to feeding time, and you can put the printer where she eats---maybe shell come out for a snack?

    I would try that as a last ditch effort though...

  • Why do you have a pet that you are afraid will "turn on you"?
